Clothing spun from things you see on TV can be hit or miss -- for every G.I. Joe sweatshirt purchased, there're hundreds of unsold My Boys bras, just sitting in boxes in Jordana Spiro's apartment. Making TV award show clothes you could actually wear, Grammy Label
On sale starting tomorrow at Fred Segal, GL's the first-ever wearable clothing line from the televised-award-putting-on-foundation The Recording Academy, featuring first-drop duds that're mostly muted basics ostensibly based on Almost Famous -- so, Marc Summers? Gear's decidedly retro looking, with outerwear highlights like a light-weight pewter-colored pullover w/ a lighter collar; a knit linen blazer in ivory, charcoal, or "vapor" colors, and a heavier double-laced cotton "pool blazer", also the name of a new show in which Greg Oden sneaks into houses with pools, and waits there alone with his knee elevated until the people come home. They've also got a graphic tee that reads "slave to the rhythm"; slim-fitting cotton twill cargo pants; and soft drawstring shorts in heather grey, forest green, and navy, though they'd argue that the Coast Guard is wayyy more soft.
Since they're cool like that, a percentage of each piece that they sell will go to charity, though one that doesn't need it is the Save the Whales movement, as Roseanne's already sold enough shirts that she never has to work again.
